Xiaomi tried to clone iMessage but screwed up badly

On the face of it, Xiaomi's plan must've seemed a good idea: take a leaf from Apple's playbook and offer free messaging when users turned on its Android phones. Unfortunately, MIUI Cloud Messaging instead prompted accusations of data mining and intrusion into privacy, as new Xiaomi phones uploaded the contents of the phone book, numbers from received SMS messages, and the phone's own details to the company's servers, with no prior warning.

Apple denies opening NSA backdoor to iPhone

Apple has denied collaborating with the NSA to add a snooping backdoor to the iPhone, insisting that despite allegations that the DROPOUTJEEP program could access large swathes of iPhone content without the user realizing, it is unaware of any such exploit. New leaks from NSA documents acquired by whistleblower Edward Snowden led to claims earlier this week that the NSA had a tool that could access data like text messages, location, and more with "100-percent success," something Apple strongly denies either facilitating or, indeed, knowing was in operation.

MyGlass for iOS released (again) but lacks iMessage support

Google has released the MyGlass for iOS app, giving iPhone users the same navigation and other functionality with the Glass headset as their Android counterparts have, after prematurely setting it wild earlier in the week.
